The EU Short Selling Regulation stipulates which transparency obligations must be fulfilled with regard to short selling activities. According to the provisions, there is a two-tier transparency system for net short positions in shares, which is linked to reporting obligations if thresholds are reached or fallen short of.
Net short positions must be reported to the competent national authority (Articles 5 and 6 EU Short Selling Regulation). According to Art. 5 (1) and (2) EU Short Selling Regulation, an initial notification has to be made if the net short position reaches 0.1% of the issued share capital of the company in question (1st level). If the net short position reaches 0.5 % of the issued share capital, it must also be published in the Bundesanzeiger1 in accordance with Art. 6 (1) and (2) EU Short Selling Regulation (2nd tier).
Please note: The information available here has been taken from publicly available sources and edited visually and textually for improved usability. Before using this data, we recommend that you carry out a plausibility check of the source data. You can find this at the Bundesanzeiger. In the section "Net short positions" you can access the individual publications via a tabular overview. A search function and other filters enable you to find further detailed information.
We offer you two different views for use here. The standard view displays the processed information in chronological order as a "card" view. You can change this display by selecting the "Table" view. We explicitly point out that the compilation serves exclusively to make the processes derived from the EU Short Sale Regulation more usable for information seekers. This includes topics such as user-friendliness, user experience and networked data. The updating of the data stock is usually carried out in an end-of-day process that also takes quality assurance aspects into account. Therefore, despite careful checking, no liability can be accepted for the accuracy, completeness and up-to-dateness of the data. In particular, we accept no liability for any damage or consequences arising from the direct or indirect use of the content provided.

For publication on the same trading day, an order must be placed by 3:30 p.m. at the latest.
